THE 28TH ANNUAL FRIENDS OF PALLIATIVE CARE GOLF DAYS RAISES $225,000 FOR BROCKVILLE GENERAL HOSPITAL’S PALLIATIVE CARE PROGRAM
PHOTO CAPTION: Thurs., September 2nd, 2021: The Brockville Country Club was the place to be for avid golfers, sponsors and friends of the Friends of Palliative Golf Days. Over 283 golfers and 60 volunteers were on hand for the two day event that took place Tues., August 31st and Wed., September 1st. A total of $225,000 was raised with all proceeds going to Brockville General Hospital Palliative Care Program.
Jim Cooper, Event Co-Chair shared, “We are extremely fortunate to have such generous support from our community; even during these challenging times. Many of our sponsors, golfers, volunteers and supporters return year-after-year because this event supports a vital community program that has touched many in so many ways.”
Over the past 28 years the Friends of Palliative Care Golf has raised $4,025,000 for the Palliative Care Program that operates at Brockville General Hospital.
David Publow, Event Co-Chair noted that the organizing committee hopes that the event will soon be out of COVID restrictions and we can decide as a community what is best for the support of Palliative Care and the tournament can return to a one-day format, or a hybrid. But for sure, the wrap-up banquet is a must, to thank our friends properly for their awesome support!
